We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Meg Westbury as the new Managing Editor for the Journal of Information Literacy.
Meg will be taking on the role from Michelle O’Connell, who successfully undertook the role for the last four years. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Michelle for her warmth, professionalism and contribution to the journal. Meg will begin to act as Managing Editor for new articles submitted to the journal.
Dr Meg Westbury is the Academic Services Librarian (Human and Social Sciences) for the Cambridge University Libraries, where she has been involved in several information literacy initiatives, including developing a 10-month teacher librarian training course. She holds a PhD in E-Research and Technology Enhanced Learning (Lancaster University), MAs in Cultural Anthropology and Library and Information Science (both University of Washington), is a Fellow of Wolfson College (Cambridge) and is FHEA.
Meg’s research interests include collaborative and peer-supported writing processes and how research infrastructures spark new identities, agencies and communities. She is particularly interested in exploring creative approaches to peer review of academic literature and in creating fora for marginalized voices in information literacy studies.
